I was thinking that it would be interesting if the government put a ban or something on IC bulbs for domestic residential uses. It seems like CF bulbs are more efficient and in the end actually more economical (based on $/hours usable before failing). It seems like it would be an easy calculation to determine how much electricity could be saved for the switch-over since you would expect roughly the same # of bulbs to go out each year and be re-purchased. What are the pitfalls of CF that might not make this possible? Have i asked this before? Should i be president?
